A CLASSIC LATE ART DECO PERIOD HOLLYWOOD REGENCY COMB CLIP ENCRUSTED WITH CLEAR RHINESTONES

This sale is for a pretty Hollywood Regency style comb clip in silvertone metal leaf design.

CONDITION: no missing rhinestones.

SIZE: 2 ins h x 1½ ins w (5 x 4 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1930s to 1950s

DESCRIPTION:

This is a very beautiful silver tone metal comb clip which can be worn either on a sweater or as a hair accessory. This adaptable type of ornament is typical of the mid 20th century. The design of this pretty comb features three leaves superimposed which are closely encrusted with clear rhinestones.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The comb is made in an elaborate and glitzy style which we call neo-Baroque. This style is also nowadays often called Hollywood Regency in the USA.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The Baroque was originally an important art movement of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and was characterised by rich and elaborate decoration, heavy scrollwork, and a great deal of opulent gilding. This return to much more elaborate and colourful jewellery was a reaction against the much less colourful and geometric style called Art Deco, which began about 1915 and lasted until the late 1930s.

This vogue for more colourful and elaborate jewellery forms was led from the USA, where some of the most beautiful Baroque or Hollywood Regency style costume jewellery was produced. With newly developed techniques of mass-production America took over from Paris as the leading exponent of stylish costume jewellery for the wider market.
